The heats of formation of stable compounds produced during thermal decomposition reactions were determined by measurements of enthalpies of reactions. The investigations were performed by using a heat-flow dropping calorimeter. The validity of the method was confirmed by measurement of the heat of formation of calcium carbonate. All calorimetric results had an accuracy of ± 2 %. The heats of formation under standard conditions,δbH298⊝kJ mol−1, for AlCl3 · 6 H2O, amorphous Al2O3, γ-Al2O3 and Al2O3 · 2 H2O · 2 Hcl are −2667±8, −1625±39, −1654±39, and −2626 ± 4, respectively.
